2012 NFL Draft Prospect Profiles: Lamar Miller, RB, Miami

We know the New York Giants have decisions to make at running back this offseason. Do they want to bring back Brandon Jacobs? If so, how much can they pay him? If not, can DJ Ware, Da'Rel Scott or Andre Brown pick up Jacobs' workload. Considering the condition of his feet and ankles, how much more time does Ahmad Bradshaw have as an elite NFL back?

With all of those questions, you have to believe running back is on the team's radar this offseason. With that in mind, let's use today's 2012 NFL Draft Prospect Profile on a back who -- as things stand now -- might be available when the Giants make the final selection of the first round this April in the 2012 NFL Draft. That would be Miami's Lamar Miller.

The National Football Post ranks Miller the No. 3 running back in this year's draft class, and the 35th-best overall draft prospect.

Wes Bunting of the NFP describes Miller this way:

"Possesses a good first step, a natural feel between the tackles and exhibits the cut back ability to slice his way up the field. ... isn't a guy who is going to make a ton of NFL defenders miss or break many tackles inside."

In a recently-released scouting report on Miller, SB Nation's Mocking The Draft had this to say:

"He has the playing strength, agility, vision, and competiveness to be a very good starting running back in the NFL. He is a big play waiting to happen every time he touches the ball because of his speed and superior burst. If he gets more opportunities in the passing game at the next level he would be dynamic with a team that uses a one back system. He also has kick return experience and is very dangerous in the open field. Miller should turn out to be a consistent starting NFL running back."
